BBC Two has confirmed that MotherFatherSon, its new drama starring Richard Gere as a powerful media magnate, will start on Wednesday 6th March.
US-born Max (Gere) is at the heart of British politics and power, owner of a media empire that includes newspapers and television stations. His aristocratic ex-wife Kathryn (Helen McCrory) has been frozen out of the family and spends her days working at a homeless shelter.
Their son, Caden (Billy Howle), is at the heart of Max’s operation, editing broadsheet newspaper The National Reporter – but he’s out of his depth and the strain is showing.
When Caden suffers a catastrophic breakdown, the fragmented family is pulled back together.
MotherFatherSon also stars Pippa Bennett-Warner as Lauren, Sinéad Cusack as Maggie, Paul Ready as Nick, Danny Sapani as the Prime Minister and Joseph Mawle as Scott.
